Award Winning West Country Independent Agents, Wilkinson Grant & Co have launched a new initiative, designed to give committed sellers a marketing edge over other re-sale homes.
James Mold of the Agency’s main office in Exeter says:
Buyers are increasingly looking for properties with committed sellers who can offer a speedy sale without tying it in with the purchase of another property. There are plenty of sellers that fall in to this category and equally committed buyers.
To address this need, we have designed a marketing option for committed sellers to make their property stand out from the crowd and we believe that being “ready to sell “and offering a “no gazump” agreement will certainly appeal to the majority of buyers.
Working with a panel of local solicitors, this initiative will enable sellers to go to market in the knowledge that once the sale has been agreed, a contract will be issued within two working days. The seller will undertake not to tie-in the sale with the purchase of another property. In the event that the sale does not proceed, we have even sourced a range of low-cost specialist insurance packages to meet costs.
Sales often take far too long and in many instances it’s because the seller hasn’t instructed their solicitor to get all paperwork ready before the property goes on the market. Chains can also delay the process considerably and the longer it takes the more chance there is for a seller to lose their onward purchase, with the possibility of another buyer offering more (or in some instances less!). It is reported that nationally, 40% of sales fall through before exchange.
